WOBM had a story about this coming Monday's homeless forum, hosted by the Kiwanis clubs of Ocean County and the Central Ocean Rotary Club.  The forum begins at 6:30 p.m.  At 6 p.m. the hallway outside Mancini Hall will be open and people can talk with groups that are assisting the homeless.

Sunday morning Tripp Rogers will interview Tracy Boyer about the homeless and the forum.  Tripp's program begins at 7 a.m. and can be heard at Magic 100.1 .
